Improving vocational training in rural areas
The project collaborated with the Axioo Class Programme, community vocational training centres (BLK komunitas) and the Ministry of Manpower and piloted an improved management model of training centres in rural areas. In the new model, training centres strengthen engagement with private companies and improve planning, operation and management of training programmes. Seeing success of the pilot, the Ministry of Manpower has decided to replicate the model using the national budget. This outcome will benefit vocational training experiences and employment of rural residents in the years to come.
